Monday night bowling with Brian and Karl.
I bowled 3 games:113, 120, and my new highest score ever: a 177! Horray!
I also bowled 4 strikes in a row, for my first time ever! Yippie! :)
I tried 2 new things at Ruby Tuesday afterwards, I think they both sucked - yuck yuck!
I'm getting a stomach ache from whatever I ate - ewww! - Drinking lots of water now!
Anyhow! Work is ok... hopefully it gets more exciting.

My New York City trip with my sister who I barely know, and her friend Gram went - 'okay' to 'poor'.
They drove me nuts somewhat on the way up, because both of them had seen Starwars ep. 3 already, and I hadn't and I thought it was very rude for them to be talking about it on the way up, especially when I had mentioned a couple times that I haven't seen it yet.
I usually invite people to ride up with me on "long trips" to talk with them and get to know them a little better or catch up on things if I hadn't seen them in a few months. This is that case with my sister Lisa and her friend Gram. I also like listening to the radio or some music while driving up if conversations got a little slow. But! There was barely any conversation, I felt it was rude that Gram started calling all his friends and talking to various people almost the whole trip up to NYC. I tried to hint that it was inappropiate for him to be constantly talking with other people on his cell phone. I turned up the radio just a little after listening to him for about an hour and he asked if I can turn to radio off in the back. - I did... but he still kept talking on his cell phone!
I gave my sister a few of those "looks", hints that meant "HEY! What's wrong with your friend Gram??" I think she ignored them or something. (On the trip back from NYC - without Gram, his trip was only one-way, my sister said she didn't think it was rude at all!!?!?)
Well I guess I found out a bit about my sister that I didn't know. We finally left NYC at about 12:30am! because my sister wanted to stop by the BAR that Gram was in and "Good-bye" before we left back to VA. She said he was "just up the road", like 5 mins away ... (Grrr... more like 10 in the opposite direction!). And her meaning of "Just stop in really quick" was nearly 30 mins! While I was double parked with my hazard lights on sitting right in front of the door of the bar. There was no available parking on the street. I wanted to not be rude and honk or anything, but after 15 mins of waiting I called her on her cell phone to tell her "times up" and to hurry up! I got her voicemail. I called again in 10 mins, and got her voice mail again, I left a message saying I'm coming in to get you when you reach 30 mins! So I parked at fire hydrant and started walking back to the bar. Gram and Lisa were just popping out of the bar as I walked up to the entrance. He was red faced "intoxicated" and Lisa said he was just meet Gram's 4 friends and getting a drink... when she thought of me?!?! Grrr! Is 25 mins REALLY quick? when we were leaving to drive back to Virginia at midnight?? I think NOT! My idea of really quick was maybe 5-10 mins, and maybe 15 mins tops! Geez! How rude!
Well, driving on the way back home, Lisa had mentioned she'll drive an hour or so to give me a break. Then about 30 mins later she said she wasn't feeling well, too some drowsy alergy meds and fell alseep.
Well, it didn't seem that whatever she took was working, she just said she was too tired to drive. Well, we didn't get out of NYC until about 1am, and I wanted to leave at the latest 11:30pm. .. and now she's not helping to drive?!?! Grrr! Well, I ended up driving almost all the way back to DC (30 mins left) before pulling over at a rest area because I was way too tired to drive anymore. We took a 2 hour nap before she woke up and said oh there's food in the ice chests in the trunk that might go bad. Well, that was the last thing on my mind! ?? Anyhow she drove back to DC where she lives - arriving about 6am... and I was just wiped out so she got her stuff out of my car said a quick bye! and went up to her apartment. I would have invited my friend or sister to sleep over, but she didn't?!?! So I slept in the car for another hour about and woke up at around 7am and drove back to my parent's place.... un-packed the ice cooler stuff which was still mostly frozen, and went to bed in my room.
Here I am ... I woke up about 30 mins ago... still a little pissed off from the trip. But I'll get over it! I want an appology - that I'll probably never get from either Gram or my sister. But, I don't really care, it was supposed to be a pleasent drive/trip, to get to know my sister and Gram a little bit better, that goal was accomplished - it's the result wasn't as favorable as I had hoped it would be. Last time I'll be doing that with them.
I usually love the food at the chinese resturants in NYC, except for this time, I thought the dishes were mostly over-cooked, and some of the dishes were just horrible, to the point of - if I was paying for the food I'd tell the resturant to either re-cook the dish or remove it from the bill. I started rating each dish as I tried it, most of the dishes I rated a 2 or 3 out of 10. My cousin noticed the little numbers and I told her what they were for and she pretty much laughed. I didn't really care since it was my personal opionions of the food for dinner. I didn't really care until she started telling everyone there that I was poorly rating all the food that was being served. I started to tell her that it's true, that the food was over-cooked, plain or just bad... she didn't really agree. (on the way home from NYC, my sister called her boyfriend at like 1:20 am and started "yapping" again - and told him that was poorly rating food at the resturnat too - GRrr... geez!) I asked nicely to get off the cell phone, and let him goto bed because you can talk with him tomarrow. But she was rude, and kept talking even after the first tunnel, a disconnect... oh hell! whatever - I pretty much told her she was being really rude talking on the cell phone for hours and hours, but she didn't think so?!?!
So ... there's my "wonderful" NYC trip! There were some good points - like seeing wedding pictures from my cousin Harold's wedding and shopping in Chinatown with my aunt Gladys and my grandpa. - at least his birthday cake was good :)

I had one of those "Worst days in you rlife" type of days yesterday.
I really don't want to talk about it here because then I'll have to be reminded of it.
Well, it's nearly 2:30 am, this early Saturday morning is better already.
I got to chat a little bit with Wally Wolf on IM and some other fursonas.
That was good and interesting.
Anyhow I am watching an anime I checked out today named: Samurai Champloo vol. 1.
Not bad so far, it's a very good anime, recommended by the anime shop keeper at Anime World today.
Anyhow, I'm going to New York City today... my grandpa's 87th? or is it 88th's birthday?
I'm only 3, makes counting birthdays easy, when your only 3.
But then again, I'm only a fursona.
I like driving, hopefully I'll have a nice drive up to NYC with my sister and her friend Grant.
See later Live journal. See ya later everyone who is anyone who read my live journals :)
Have a great weekend!

Well, my first day at Biovail has come and gone.
It was pretty cool to see lab equipment and drug production rooms.
It was nice meeting everyone, and I had a nice tour of the facilities.
I had a 2 hr safety training class.
... and that was pretty much my day.
I didn't sleep much or very well last night, woke up like 5 times.
So, after work today I came straight home, didn't eat dinner and went to bed.
I just woke up, that was a nice 4+ hour nap.
I missed "game night", oh well I'll catch it next week.
I'm heading up to New York this weekend for my grandpa's 87th birthday,
so I won't be seeing Starwars ep. 3 until next week. - oh well! :(
At least I'll see it in the theathers.
Off to eat some dinner! ... and play some more online Poker! :)
Oh yeah if your reading this, and you call me "Kody", please call me "Chris" from now on.
*Kody is a character I play for a LARP; you can call me Kody if I'm wearing fur or at the LARP.

Well, that was strange, I worked all day today trying to get people to do my background check for employment. I did all the phone calling and faxing... and now I'm rushing off to McLean to fill out my paperwork for employment so I can FINALLY start my new (temp to perm) job TOMARROW!

Horray, I found another room to crash in at AC because my plans to share a room got canceled yesterday :(
I wish my part in helping AC was a bit more clear, because I'd like to help out a lot, but it seems they just want me to show up as I am... nothing more nothing less.
I guess I'll have some fun going bowling tonight!
I have to try harder to hit more pins down! :)
I'm still praying my job will start soon, I'm getting poor as my savings run low. :(
(I have no idea why I keep posting to LJ, I think it's evil!)
